I, for one, thought the correspondent(s) field is a space-saver with the 
directional arrow indicating the flow of the e-mail
until I read a post from a blind person who needed to use
reading software to read his/her e-mail.
The use of an arrow and correspondent(s) field was not
an improvement in his/her case, and worse, I have no idea if the poster 
could
restore the old setting using the rather complicated procedure involving 
multiple steps.

I thought a UI change requires special acceptance procedure if I recall 
correctly. Maybe the consideration of the accessibility should be part 
of this UC change acceptance.
